Description of Sphynx Cowl 5-60O

Sphynx Cowl 5-60O is a right-spin balance type combination, released with the BX-27 Random Booster Sphynx Cowl Select as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports Basic Line system on February 22nd, 2024.

This Beyblade features Sphynx Cowl, a right-spin defense type Blade introduced with this Random Booster. This stock combination comes with the 5-60 Ratchet and Orb Bit. Out of the three combinations from the Random Booster Sphynx Cowl Select, this one is probably the most coherent and efficient.

The result is a docile, stationary stamina/defense type combination.

Blade : Sphynx Cowl

Sphynx Cowl is a right-spin Blade featuring an overall circular shape with a rugged design. This Blade has 9 main contact points along its perimeter, resulting in the rugged design of this Blade. These contact points are part of a gimmick, the “Barrage Blades”, designed to align with the 9 protrusions of the 9-80 Ratchet.

There are 5 contact points on one side of the Blade, and 4 on the other half, creating an unbalanced weight distribution. This lack of balance results in a relatively poor stamina potential, with a tendency to wobble and tilt over early in battle, especially when combined to pointy Bits such as Needle, High Needle, Spike or Gear Needle.

Ratchet : 5-60

5-60 (or Five Sixty) is a Ratchet from the Beyblade X generation. This Ratchet features five wide “blades” along its perimeter, and it is 6 mm tall.

Its overall design and its low height make it a popular choice in stationary combinations, using Bits such as Needle, High Needle, Spike or Orb.

Bit : Orb (O)

Orb (or O) is a stamina type Bit. It is the “High” variant of Taper, being 1 mm taller than its predecessor.

“O” features a small ball-shaped plastic tip, similar to Ball (B). Compared to Ball, “O” has a smaller diameter, resulting in a smaller contact surface between the Bit and the stadium floor. The smaller contact surface creates less mobility, making combinations using “O” stationary in the center area of the stadium, similarly to Needle or High Needle. When hard launched, a combination using “O” will typically move in small circles before remaining stationary.

How to Improve Sphynx Cowl 5-60O

This stock combination actually makes good use of the Sphynx Cowl Blade, since 5-60 and Orb will provide some much needed balance and stability to the combination. 9-60 can be a decent alternative to 5-60, but the combination behavior will be slightly more erratic. Furthermore, players can replace Orb with Ball, Gear Ball, or Gear Point.

Additionally, Bits such as Needle, Gear Needle, High Needle or Spike are obvious defense type alternatives, but the Blade’s lack of balance results in poor stamina potential with such options.

Final Thoughts

This stock combination features decent Xtreme Gear Sports Parts, including the Orb Bit, which is only available in the Random Booster Viper Tail Select (at the time of writing).

Therefore, Sphynx Cowl 5-60O is not a must have in a Beyblade X collection. However, it can be a decent addition for players looking for the Sphynx Cowl Blade and Orb Bit.
